Luke’s Wk 5 Fantasy Football Favorites
Can you believe we're already 5 weeks into pro football season? Here are Luke's predictions for your week 5 fantasy lineup.
At this point in the season there aren't a ton of players on the waiver wires that will make a meaningful impact on your team, so let's focus on some starts and sits for week 5.
Luke's Favorites To Start
Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers QB - Big Ben hasn't been himself so far this year, but I think that changes this week with the Steelers hosting the Jaguars. Ben is historically good at home, so go with him in week 5.
Carlos Hyde, 49ers RB - Hyde is the best thing on that offense and that doesn't look like it will change anytime soon. Not to mention he's put up at least 13 points in PPR leagues every week this season.
Hunter Henry, Chargers TE - The Giants Defense has let up more receiving yards, TD's and PPR points than any other Defense this season, and Henry is becoming a favorite target for Phillip Rivers.
Who Luke Says To Sit
Amari Cooper, Raiders WR - Cooper has had a ton of drops this season and is facing a Ravens Defense that has limited WR's all season. Plus Derek Carr is out for the Raiders.
Tyrod Taylor, Bills QB - Taylor has had a solid year, but so has the Bengals Defense. In fact, on average they only give up 185 passing yards per game.
Martellus Bennett, Packers TE - Bennett has had next to no production for the Pack this season. Even though Dallas has a bad Defense, when Bennett is on the field in passing downs he's mostly blocking.
Good luck in week 5, and don't forget to send your week 6 lineup questions to Luke@BigFrog104.com.
